Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Weir on Jerry's playing

I need my Bob "When I go to the White House it's to work, not to visit" Weir in small doses, and indeed this is short (3m), sweet and just exactly perfect.
His sentiments here are very well put, in my opinion, especially starting at about 1:43.
Be warned, it starts with an ad ...........

You're welcome. It was the part about how Jerry could add somethig to a tune from a traditional genre without being 'irksome' that got me.
Of course he could.
It was a comment that went right to Jerry's respect for the music-I don't believe he ever felt he was bigger than the music. He was an exceptionlly tasteful player.
